The Secret Commonwealth

John Purser's play is set in the late 17th century and takes its inspiration from the old Scots ballad `Mill O'Tiftie's Annie', based on the true story of a miller's daughter who fell in love with the trumpeter at Fyvie Castle in Aberdeenshire. The play's title comes from a work of the period by the Rev Robert Kirk about the spirit world of elves and fairies. Starring Vicki Masson, Anne Kristen, Derek Anders, Kenneth Glenaan, Jimmy Chisholm, Andrew Dallmeyer, Anne Lacey, Paul Young, Robert Paterson, Gerda Stevenson and Kern Falconer. Music by John Purser.
